What part # Bilstein

Trying to look up Bilstein shocks for the OBS but when I try to look up the 5100 series they say they arent available for the OBS F350.....so I was wondering if someone has the part # that works in the 5100 series shock. I found the 4600 series, but not the 5100 series

Thats why I need them, my fronts seem ok, but might be just a touch short (since adding leaf) but the truck kinda jerks when I hit a bump with the rear, I think one of the rears is shot

Why didn't you just check out Bilsteins website?

Rear:
24-016186
Bilstein 24-016186 - Bilstein Heavy-Duty Series Shocks and Struts - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Front:
24-016179
Bilstein 24-016179 - Bilstein Heavy-Duty Series Shocks and Struts - Overview - SummitRacing.com

The F-250 and F-350 OBS share the same shocks.

Thanks tho for the info about the bilstein site tho, I didnt realize they were that in depth. I have found the 5100 series #'s and can post them here if anyone else would like to know

Edit, no I havent found it yet, thought I did but it wasnt my search that came up.......
Also they give ALL the dimensions of the 5100 series shocks...but none of the dimensions for the 4600 series to compare by length

So upon as much reading as I want to do on the subject, it seems the 5100 series is not available for a F350, I dont know if the tubes are too big or what, or if they just plain need to be ordered by measurements. Either way I am not going to pull one off to measure it lol, if I pull them off there will be other shocks here to replace them, so it looks like the 4600's it is

to find out what lenght shocks you need, meausre the eye to eye as it sits on level ground and you need atlest 4" of travel on each side of that measurement. more the marrier but that is the minimum requirement i belive..

i called bilstein and talk to the develpoment department (SHANE?? i belive) and he will hook you up. thats what i did when i needed shocks on mine as i had a lift in the front and the rear shock mount were made to suit my needs but didnt match the stock locations.... and i lifted it on top of that.

do give up on it yet, i cant see how they make them for a 250 but not a 350, makes no sense. or call the OBS wiz, Cary

When I was looking I found the 5100 for a 2WD 250, bronco or 150, but every site said not available for the 350.
